i've been given a play pen, it's from the 70's and is coated in quite flaky, orangy coloured varnish. ideally i'd like it gone as a) it looks horrid and b) as soon as ds is big enough i imagine he'll be chewing / sucking the bars and i'm pretty sure bits will end up in him.
so, i want to remove the old varnish, has anyone done similar? would it be best to sand paper it off or use a stripper? would a stripper leave nasty residue in the wood to also be sucked off? is there an easy way to sand paper as the feel of it goes through me
